Watch the webinar

Coronavirus is an existential threat to charities. Crucial organisations now face collapse and many are unable to raise the funds they need among a global lockdown.

The behaviour of donors has also been upended: how people feel, what they think and how they act has changed. Will this be the new norm?

Watch the session and discover CAF’s latest insight into the impact of COVID-19 among donors and charities. You'll learn what the polling tells us about how donors are feeling and how you can work with them in these difficult times, and what we can do to encourage giving into the future. Topics include:

  • How donors are reacting to coronavirus and lockdown
  • How charities are coping: their needs, challenges and hopes
  • What we can do to encourage more giving
  • What’s next - can we rebuild after the epidemic?

This session was held live on 30 April 2020.
